Mr Roland Hettige

MBBS, FRCS (ORL-HNS), MSc

Personal profile

Mr Hettige is a fully trained Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor, who takes a particular interest in nasal and sinus problems, in both adults and children.

Mr Hettige has spent the last 10 years gaining super-specialist training in advanced septorhinoplasty, nasal and sinus surgery both in London (St Mary’s and Guy’s Hospitals) and Oxford (John Radcliffe University Hospital).

 

Mr Hettige is not just a Facial Plastic specialist but also an ENT surgeon. This means that as well as appreciating the aesthetics of the final result he also places great emphasis on the dynamics of your nasal airflow, ensuring the nose you end up with will have function and beauty. 

 

He relocated to take up his NHS Consultant job at Frimley Health NHS Trust and is the lead surgeon in the trust responsible for the Rhinology service. He routinely accepts referrals from other surgeons to perform difficult and revision surgery, and his unique skills and experience now attract referrals throughout Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and the London boroughs.
